2012 Goals~Read 24 Non-fiction books

In 2011 I read 40 books as part of the reading challenges I participated in. I love to read and I am rarely without a book or two going. 

This year I decided to change things up a bit with my reading. I have decided not to participate in any reading challenges this year and instead have given myself a challenge to read 24 non-fiction books in 2012. You see I love to read fiction and do not read enough non-fiction. I will also be reading non-fiction (I will be sharing that list in a future post) and will continue to review books throughout the year.

Here are the books I have chosen in no particular order.

  1.  One Thousand Gifts: Daring to Live Fully Right Where You are ~ Ann Voskamp

When I lay my Isaac down is awesome...heart-wrenching. You have a few books on your list that I will be reading too...like What Women Fear.
